So an early start it was then and leaving my options open if the terrain was to get to difficult. The plan was to go up Moel Siabod from Capel Curig, up the Daear Ddu Ridge to the summit and then along the crest and down to the main track. If that was to prove to be a bit dangerous with snow & ice, I would of just gone to a few more low level places for a look round. As it happens, all was well and another fantastic day on this fantastic mountain was had.
A quick stop off at the ogwen valley, with the mighty Tryfan on the right, as the sun was just about to come up
I made steady progress and was soon at the unamed lake which was well frozen over
As everywhere seemed to be frozen I took the chance to go down by the Llyn and have a walk along the shore. Quite impossible at other times of the year so it made for a very pleasant change. It was well frozen over and made for a good photo or two
After I had got down I decided that I'd go and have a look around some other old quarry building just off the main track. They are not easily seen and most people propably miss them altogether. Quite an interesting place
From here it was a straight walk back to the car and getting back about 3pm made it a great 6 and half hours in this most fascinating place. All what was left to do was to go back to the Plas y Benin for another look at the Snowdon Horseshoe as the sun was going down
A fantastic day in fantastic weather in a fantastic place
